Harvest Vegetarian Restaurant with Berfu

Finally, Berfu finished and submitted her thesis and we decided to celebrate at Harvest Vegetarian Restaurant with a bottle of Italian wine Elif (Berfu’s mother) sent for us (as seen in the photo below).

John had the same dish again because he can’t help himself (English Spinach and Kumara Gnocchi served in a Lemon and Garlic Cream sauce).

I had Nutty Leek and Cheese Tart (Handmade puff pastry with a combination of Gruyere, Mozzarella, Fetta and Parmesan cheeses with Walnuts and Lemon Thyme and served with Ratatouille)

The funniest event of the night was that we were trying to take a selfie. Someone from the next table told us that one of the guys sitting closer to us could take our photo. So, he did take our photo after struggling with John’s phone. You’re allowed to laugh as we did 🙂

That’s me but not all of me 🙂

Purpose of this photo? I don’t know but you can’t complain as it would’ve been  like the one before that.

Sacher Torte at Queen Victoria Building

After having this divine dessert in Vienna in 2015, it was interesting to see it at an Austrian cafe in Queen Victoria Building (QVB). It has always been my favourite building here in Sydney.

The verdict? It was more like a very rich chocolate cake whereas the original was well balanced and much lighter. Initially I thought, this Austrian cafe might be the only place to have sacher torte outside Vienna but I have just discovered that our local French patissier makes sacher torte as well. I think I’ll try theirs, too. Then make a decision.
